Is A Trust Right For You?
You have worked hard to earn a living for yourself and your family. You have tried to make the right decisions for your loved ones and now you want to make the right decision about protecting your assets. A trust can be a great thing for people like you, providing you with In ore control over how your assets are protected and distributed once you are gone.
At Mock Law, L.P.A., in Toledo, I have been helping people in Ohio protect their assets via trusts for more than a decade. As an elder law attorney, family law attorney and clinical social worker, I am familiar with the issues that often lead to the creation of trusts and can help you choose the best arrangement.
What Are The Benefits Of A Trust?
Every situation is different but, in general, a trust can do the following:
- Avoid probate
- Provide specific instruction on ownership and use of your property
- Avoid the need to create a guardianship if you become incapacitated
- Keep your estate’s affairs private
- Reduce estate taxes
If you have minor children, you can use a trust to ensure your estate’s finances are managed by a trusted adult until your children are of an appropriate age to receive their inheritance. If you have a loved one with special needs, you can create a special needs trust to ensure they are cared for and qualify for necessary benefits.
